Κinoniko EKAV is an independent social organization located in Athens that deals with the fight against any form of social exclusion. The goal of the organization is to reach out and help people and groups who are unable to meet their personal basic needs and as a result are often rejected by society.
Following the progress and the resurgence of the refugee issue in Greece, the organization decided to be mobilized in a more active way on the issue. After intense efforts, since October 2019, Kinoniko EKAV undertook the operation of three Accommodation Structures for unaccompanied minors, in the framework of the "Nefeli" project, implemented with the co-financing of the European Union and the National Program of the Asylum and Immigration Fund. Through this project, the operation of two Accommodation Structures for unaccompanied minors in Attica and one in the Prefecture of Kastoria began. The structures offer accommodation, food, medical and psychological support, education and entertainment to 108 children. The main goal of the action is to strengthen the self-confidence and the development of the children's skills, in order to integrate them in the Greek and European reality, but also to provide legal support during the processes of their reunification with their families. The structures of minors are framed by social workers, psychologists, teachers, interpreters and caregivers.
